Police are asking the public for help identifying a man who allegedly robbed a taxi cab driver.
The incident took place in Norwalk on Wednesday, Oct. 16, when the man got a ride from an Eveready Taxi Cab driver at the Darien Train Station and requested to be dropped off at Stop & Shop on Connecticut Avenue in Norwalk, said Norwalk Police Lt. Terrence Blake.
When the cab arrived at the Stop & Shop, the driver requested payment and the man told the driver not to turn around or he would shoot him, Blake said.
The man then grabbed the driver’s cellular phone but dropped it in the cab before fleeing across the street to Shop Rite, police said.
The driver was not injured and the suspect did not display a firearm.
Anyone who recognizes the man or has information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Taranto at 203-854-3102.
